Water Theater Provides Fresh Water and Entertainment

Here’s an example of cool architecture that multi-tasks.

In an attempt to revamp the harbour area of Las Palmas in Spain’s Canary Islands, Nicholas Grimshaw of Grimshaw Architects designed a stunning water theater that expands on the Seawater Greenhouse concept and takes full advantage of the area’s steep beaches, prominent winds and abundant sunshine.

Utilizing these renewable energies, the structure uses vertically stacked evaporators and condensers to convert sea water into fresh water. The roof collects solar heat, which is fed into a distiller, which freshens the water – which is then used to irrigate crops and help moderate the hot, arid climate.

The best part of all – other than the fact that the building doesn’t require any energy-hungry air conditioning equipment? The building also functions as a large auditorium.

Consider it guilt-free entertainment.
